The hypoxic microenvironment triggers many of the events underlying cancer progression and stem cell maintenance and/or differentiation. In maintaining oxygen homeostasis, oxygen levels are sensed by mitochondria, communicated by reactive oxygen species (ROS), and conveyed by hypoxia-inducible factors HIF’s. Hypoxia signalling pathways have far-reaching consequences for cellular and tissue processes from metabolism through angiogenesis to metastasis.
Dr. Hannele Ruohola-Baker (University of Washington) and Dr. Randall Johnson (University of Cambridge) will be speaking at the upcoming Cell Press webinar on “Hypoxic Microenvironments”, which Don Whitley Scientific and HypOxygen are proud to sponsor. Dr. Ruohola-Baker’s lab investigates metabolic determinants of and miRNA function in stem cells, and Dr. Johnson examines the effects of hypoxia in cancer and inflammation.
Please join us on Thursday, April 16th at 12:30 EST / 18:30 GMT to hear these two internationally recognised experts on the hypoxic microenvironment speak about their work.
